Snow Cake

with Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman

Sigourney Weaver has been a favorite of mine ever since Aliens. She finds the weirdest projects sometimes, and this is one of them. I rented the movie because she was in it, and because I also like Alan Rickman, who played Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movies.

Snow Cake is an odd movie. After I watched it the first time, I thought it over for awhile, then rented it again. After renting it four times, I thought I might as well buy it. Often, after I actually buy a movie, I never watch it again, but I’ve watched my own copy twice now, and probably will a few times more.

The description of Snow Cake is off-putting. Don’t read it. This is one of those movies that, the more you know about it, the less you know about it.

Galaxy Quest

If you have ever been a Trekker or a Xenafan, do not miss this one! Especially if you’ve been to a fan convention! And especially if you truly believe, way deep down, that, “It’s real! It’s all real!”
